Katherine Schwarzenegger joins ‘Avengers’ stars to defend Chris Pratt after losing Twitter challenge


Chris Pratt’s friends and family are rushing to his defense after getting dissed on social media.

It all started after a Twitter challenge asked which celebrity Chris “has to go” among Pratt, Evans, Pine and Hemsworth.

Pratt soon began trending on the platform after many users named him the “worst Hollywood Chris,” reported People.

When E! News posted their version of the poll, Pratt’s wife Katherine Schwarzenegger responded by asking for kindness.

"There’s so much going on in the world and people are struggling in so many ways," wrote the host of “The Gift of Forgiveness” podcast . "Being mean is so yesterday. There’s enough room to love all these guys. Love is what we all need, not meanness and bullying. Let’s try that."

Robert Downey Jr. also chimed in to uphold Pratt’s honor.

"What a world... The “sinless” are casting stones at my brother, Chris Pratt...,"  the 55-year-old captioned a photo with Pratt from “Avengers: Endgame.” "A real Christian who lives by principle, has never demonstrated anything but positivity and gratitude... AND he just married into a family that makes space for civil discourse and (just plain fact) INSISTS on service as the highest value."

Mark Ruffalo contributed to the discussion by alluding to some comments that criticized Pratt for not being more political.

"You all, @prattprattpratt is as solid a man there is,” Ruffalo tweeted. "I know him personally, and instead of casting aspersions, look at how he lives his life. He is just not overtly political as a rule. This is a distraction. Let’s keep our eyes on the prize, friends. We are so close now."

Zoe Saldana, who starred with Pratt in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Avengers: Endgame,” also shared words of encouragement by quoting rapper Tupac Shakur.

"No matter how hard it gets, stick your chest out, keep your head up and handle it. -Tupac. You got this @prattprattpratt,” Saldana tweeted. “Your family, friends, colleagues & everyone who’s ever crossed paths with you knows your heart and your worth!"

Despite all the online drama, neither Pratt nor the other celebrity Chrises have publicly commented on the issue.
